A loan of $600 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizers for her corn business.

Chanthou's Group's story

Chanthou is 36 years old and married. She lives with her husband and five children in a village of the Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. All of her children are dependent and still in school. To make a living, she has grown corn for ten years. Chanthou is able to earn about 20,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 6,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy-field business.

She has been with VisionFund for four cycles while the other members have been with VisonFund for five cycles. The past loans have improved her current business. She and her group member are now asking for a loan with VisionFund of 1,200,000 KHR each. As the leader, Chanthou will use her portion to buy seeds and fertilizers for her corn business and use a fragment of it to spend on plowing the field. She hopes to grow her corn fruitfully in order to sell it for a good price in the market so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.
